Multiple Teams · Woodstock Drops Hornets 37-10/ Cherokee Final Regular Season Game


The Hornet Varsity Football Team dropped last weeks Region 4AAAAAAA contest 37-10 as they continued to have challenges stopping opponents. The Hornets are scoring 18pts ppg but yielding 31pts ppg. In host Cherokee, the Hornets will be facing the Region’s most anemic offense with an average of 3.2ppg and the Region’s most porous Defense giving up 35 ppg. It will be Senior Night for the Warriors so the Hornets can expect a competitive effort on the part of the Warriors to go out with a win in their Final Game. Cherokee’s record currently stands at 0-9 for the season and 2-15 lifetime vs. Roswell.
The Hornets are still in the mix for the State AAAAAAA Playoffs. Walton, Woodstock and Etowah have locked up 3 of the 4 Playoff Spots for Region 4. Lassiter must defeat Etowah on the road in order to seize the #4 seed from our Region. However, a Lassiter loss leaves them a Region record of 2-3. Coupled with a Roswell win, the Hornets 2-3 Region record would give the # 4 seed to the Hornets by virtue of their win vs. Lassiter on October 6.
The # 4 seed will play the Region Champion Winner of Region 3AAAAAAA’s game between McEachern and Hillgrove on the road on Friday November 10.

Multiple Teams · 28-21 Loss to Etowah/ Woodstock Now Looms Large for STATE PLAYOFFS


Last Friday’s Region 4AAAAAAA Loss to the Etowah Eagles on Senior Night puts the Hornets in a position of needing help from Walton and Lassiter as the 2017 Season comes to an end. With a Region Record of 1-2 the Hornets are behind Etowah at 2-1 and Woodstock at 2-1. Lassiter currently has a 1-2 record in the Region. Cherokee is 0-3.
Etowah ends it season with two home games vs. both Walton and Lassiter. If Walton/Lassiter prevail Etowah has a final region record of 2-3. Woodstock ends it season with Roswell and Walton which gives them a possible region record of 2-3. Lassiter ends it season with Cherokee and Etowah. However, even winning both games would give them a region record of 3-2. The Hornets would hold the tie-breaker over Lassiter due to their Head to Head victory over the Trojans on October 6. The Hornets need to win out vs. Woodstock and Cherokee and rely on some help from others in order to get the coveted #2 seed in the Region and host a 1st Round AAAAAAA State Playoff game.
The Hornets were victimized by costly turnovers last Friday vs. Etowah. However, Hornet RB Kamonty Jett surpassed 1,000 yards for the season with two games remaining.
Moving forward the Hornets hold a lifetime record of 9-2 over the Wolverines from Woodstock to include a 59-7 win last season. Woodstock has a prolific Offense Scoring 31 ppg while giving up 27 ppg. Woodstock defeated Cherokee last week 30-6.
